Adult Learners have their say on Further Education

The National Adult Learning Organisation (Aontas) held the first meeting of the new National Adult Learner’s Forum in The Mansion House, Dublin on February 26th.  80 learners from across Ireland met to discuss their achievements and challenges in further education. The learners in attendance were nominated to join the forum by their local adult education groups, and included representatives from community education, the Youthreach programme, the Back to Education Initiative and the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme. The National Adult Learner Forum will provide a space for learners who are currently in further education and training to come together and have a unique opportunity to directly influence the further education and training service based on their needs.
